Sew Sweet Bee


Hello sweet Chickadee's.
It is a beautiful day here in Texas, finally.  I think we have more soggy weather coming up though.  
It is the perfect day to sit outside and hand stitch, crochet or whatever makes you happy.

This is our second year for the Sew Sweet Bee and it has started off with some fun sewing.



Amy from A Quilting Sheep was the queen bee for January and she picked a house block.  I added a lavender heart for a door knob but did not get a picture of it.  If you visit Amy you can see the block with the heart door knob.


On Saturday my sweet hubby and I where married for 31 years.  We took a few days off and went to New Mexico.  Not much snow is town but the mountain had plenty to play and ski in.  We had so much fun.  
While he went into a restaurant we go to when we visit there I was just sitting in the car playing with Duchess and I looked to my right and there was a deer.  Yes a deer.  He was hungry so I got out of the car and feed him.  He licked the food right out of my hand it was amazing and so much fun.  There were more deer and very tame.

Hope you are having an amazing week.
Happy Sewing.

Hugs,
donna

Lecien Flower Sugar Fall 2014 is HERE!


Happy Friday!
It is rainy, cold and dreary outside.  
I have my sippee cut of coffee and I Love Lucy in the dvd player.


It is is finally here Lecien's Flower Sugar Fall 2014.  This line was supposed to be here in November.  Better late than never is what mom used to say.
I am loving this line.  It is so much fun.


I also got Pocket Kitties for Quilt Gate in the shop.  But only 2 pieces came in the rest is on back order.  Now this line was not supposed to be here until the end of February or March.  I am so glad a few pieces came in early.  The kitties are just the sweetest.

Hope y'all are keeping warm and doing what you love.

A Yummy Giveaway and Almost Finished


Hope y'all are having a great weekend so far.
The rain and drearyness is finally gone and it is a beautiful day here in Texas.
The only thing is I think the wind is going to blow us to Oz.  LOL!

The sweet Jane over at Jane's Fabrics is doing a give away from my shop.  You will win a $25. gift certificate.   It is also open to international blogger's as well.  Just keep in mind international sweet peeps you will have to pay shipping.  In my .com shop I offer discounted international shipping no matter how much you order.   When you visit Jane check out her tutorials.  She is super talented. 



Just thought I would show you the progress on Erica's quilt.  I quilted it with hearts and rose's.  Today I am making the binding.  So hopefully the final result will be soon.  I have some of the large print left and I will be adding it back to my shop if any of you are interested?

Hope your weekend is grand.

Pam Kitty Garden Is In The Shop


Happy Monday sweet people.

It has been a cold rainy weekend here.  Perfect timing for Pam Kitty Garden to come in.
This fabric is gorgeous and you can find it in my shop.  I promise you are going to love each piece.  This fabric line just has to be the sweetest.


Well, you are never going to guess I was sick again.  But this time it started on Christmas day.   I slept most of the day and went to the Dr. the next day.  Got some antibiotics and I am finally feeling much better.    This being sick is so tiring. 

I hope all of you are feeling well and had an awesome Christmas.  

This year hubby and I did not exchange gifts.  Instead we are thinking we may go somewhere and play in the snow.  

Hope you have a great Monday.

Hugs,
donna

Sweet Time Of Year


Happy Monday everyone.
This is such a sweet time of year.  Christmas is in 3 days and I am so looking forward to it.  Love being with family and friends and watching my little great niece open all her goodies from Santa.


Thought I would show you my Pam Kitty Picnic quilt all finished.  One of my friends saw it and loved it for her daughter and wants to give it to her for Christmas and asked me if I would sell it.  Sure I said.  
I am so happy to have saved some of the fabrics so I think I can make another one.  I just love this panel and fabrics.


This is the quilting I did on it.  I choose daisy's because they remind me of summer.


I used swiss dots on red by Riley Blake for the back.  Just had to use a red and white gingham for the binding,  It screams picnic and I think gingham's make a great binding.


I put most of this quilt top together this weekend for my son's girlfriend.  This is going to be her Christmas present and she loves pink.  The pattern is simple so it goes together pretty fast.  It is a Bunny Hill design Simply Cottage.


I choose to use the light pink polka dot for the inner boarder and use the focus fabric for the outer boarder.  The fabrics I used are a mix of Lecien and Tanya Whelan.  Now I know I am not going to have it all finished by Christmas day.  So my thoughts are, if I just get the top finished I can wrap it up for her for Christmas and at least finish it by New Years.  I know it is last minute but what do you get a young girl that really does not want anything?

Wishing you all a wonderful day.
